#WillOfSteel – Unsung heros of India

I have personally met a retired Hockey player who represented India in Asiad and won a silver medal, work as a doorman of SBI ATM in CHM Road, Bangalore. I have seen Indian athletes live in the train boogies in the train sheds of the Railway yard because the Govt. didn’t have the funds for their stay in a hotel or a guest house when they go to play for their states. In such sad state JSW WillOfSteel and Blogadda’s initiative is commendable.
I am truly impressed and inspired to see the nominations. I voted for most of them. And hats off to all the nominees. It’ll be unfair to say one is better than the other. However, here are the list of few of the names which I thought have moved me and inspired me the most.

 

SURESH – THE SNAKE SAVIOUR

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 10.01.58 pmThis man reminds me of a story which goes like this… “An old hermit was passing through a river when he spotted a scorpion was drowning. He went close to it and tried to help the scorpion. But the scorpion stung him. He tried and scorpion stung him again. This kept of happening. There was another man passing by who saw what was happening and asked the hermit.. “Why are you trying to save the scorpion when it is stinging you each time you do that?” To which the hermit replied.. “stinging is his instinct, saving is mine. If he is not giving up on his why should I give up on mine?”

Hats off to Suresh, he’s been bitten so many times and yet he continues to save them. And why not? Snakes are most misunderstood animals. They don’t want to bite people unnecessarily, it’s their self-defence. We are intruding into their habitat, they didn’t come to the cities to bite us. And the man who understands this and dedicated his life on it. Deserves all credit.
RUFUS D’SOUZA – THE LIFE COACH

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 10.01.47 pmIt’s very easy to give up when one is so close to achieve his dream but have to pull out because of the family pressure. But this man did something unthinkable, dedicated his entire life for the cause so that others could live their dream. And that too for the sport which hugely overshadowed by Cricket in India.

 

 

KALYANASUNDARAM – A LIFELONG OF SELFELESSNESS
Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 10.02.16 pmEach time for a cause we appeal in social media to donate a miniscule amount of money to help the needy. For example, when the Kashmir flood happened, we started a cause where we requested to skip one weekends plan and donate that amount to the cause for the people in Kashmir. You’ll be surprised to know that we reached to more than ten thousand people and only NINE out of ten thousand helped. In a world like this when you come across a man like KALYANASUNDARAM who just earns money to give it to the needy, one just can’t help but to bow down to him.
There’s not enough words for this man. God bless him.
MAMTA RAWAT – THE GIRL WHO SAVED 500 LIVES

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 10.02.29 pmShe is just 24, she risked her life to rescue hundreds of children and tourists stranded on a mountain during devastating floods in Uttarakhand, India, not stopping even when her house was destroyed. People like that restore faith in humanity. I bow down to thee Mamta.

 
 

KAMLESH ZAPADIYA – KAMLESH WALKS 20 KMS EVERYDAY JUST TO MAKE EDUCATION FUN.
Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 10.02.59 pmWhat can you say about this man? In our country the root cause of all major problem is illiteracy. And more than illiteracy the education system and badly literate people. Most people don’t study to gain knowledge or learn something but they do it get marks. Basic civic sense comes from a good education and that civic sense is missing from India. That is is huge problem. Hats off to Kamesh for taking up so much trouble to give young children that very education in a fun way.
There are many more and God bless all of them. These people are the answer to those who say “What can we do alone?” Or “the world will not change just because of me.” These are the people who proved them wrong. They proved that the world changes eventually if one is determined enough. Nothing is impossible.

I’m voting forKALYANASUNDARAM’s #WillOfSteel and blogging on BlogAdda to help him/her get felicitated and eventually enabled by JSW.
